She was seeking revenge. What she found was a vampire who swept her into the darkest depths of passion.
Chicago, Illinois . . . the windy city. Home to football greats, dinosaurs named Sue, and, when the sun goes down . . . powerful vampires battling for the right to rule the city and beyond.
Born into slavery, Aden is one of the most powerful vampires in North America, waging war on others of his kind in a struggle to become the next Lord of the Midwest. But in the midst of the deadliest fight of his long life, the ghosts of his past have come back to haunt him. Slavery still exists, and Aden is hellbent on destroying it and the vampires who profit from it.
Sidonie Reid is an investigative reporter in pursuit of the biggest story of her career, until that story costs the life of a friend and Sid realizes she has to do much more than write about it. Intent on bringing down the vampires and their slave network, Sid gains entry to the highest levels of vampire society, where she finds herself confronting the raw sexuality that is Aden.
Caught up in a dark passion that neither can resist, Aden and Sidonie join forces, determined to defeat the old regime and everything it stands for. The dangers are beyond calculation, but the ultimate reward is worth the risk. If they survive.
Once again D.B. Reynolds has written a can’t-put-down novel. When I was introduced to Aden in Ms. Reynolds’ novella HUNTED, I was not sure I would like him when he got his own book. To me he appeared to be a woman hater and an arrogant, overbearing alpha male. I’m delighted to say that getting to know Aden in his book has totally changed my mind. Okay, he’s still arrogant and Alpha but he doesn’t hate women, he was just abused by many.
The plot revolves around the elimination of a slavery ring and the romance of Aden and Sidonie. There is lust at first sight between our H/h that develops into love as Sidonie earns Aden’s trust and she proves her affection for Aden. The reader can’t help knowing that these two are meant for each other. There is a side story as Aden battles for the title of Lord of The Midwest.
This book is full of action(violence) and sex, lots of both. There is some mild spanking that is consensual. D.B. is a master at writing these scenes. The sensuality will take your breath away.
A standalone book but you will really miss out if you don’t read the entire series because this vampire/human world is so skillfully wrought that you may be expecting to see your local vampires the next time you are out at night.
